Evesham & District

Classic Cinema

This group has just celebrated its tenth birthday, and over those years we have introduced, watched, enjoyed (usually) and discussed upwards of 200 feature films and dozens of documentary and comedy shorts – all of them a treat in their way, all of them worthwhile, and all of them at least fifty years old.

Our autumn season, and our second decade, begins in September with a classic Agatha Christie adaptation made in Hollywood and directed by a French exile as long ago as 1945. And by Christmas we shall also have sampled – among others – a late John Wayne western; the definitive portrayal of Dracula from the earliest years of the talkies; and a pioneering Technicolor leap into the rock ’n’ roll years.

We meet on the first and third Friday morning of the month at Evesham Methodist Church. We always break for tea or coffee, and it never costs more than £2.00. And there is always a welcome for new members.
